Here is our proposal video! We are in Kauia, HI "The Garden Island" and as you can see I was COMPLETELY surprised :D

We are currently planning our wedding for May 2014! We are looking at Mexico and specifically those resorts that have chapels. I am currently working with a TA and I am awaiting quotes as I type. 

 

I am so excited to be apart of this community now!

    Congratulations!  That's awesome you have it on video and in Hawaii right by a waterfall!  Kudos to your fiance for the perfect spot!  We just have some right after pictures of me excited with my ring!

     

    I'm looking a little before that timeframe in Mexico too.  What TA are you using?

    Thank you!! Yes he did so very good. I am so happy we have so many pictures and a video to remember the day! I still spend most of may day staring at my ring haha. 

     

    I am using Luxe Destination Weddings. I know there are a lot of bad reviews out there but there are a lot of good ones too so I took a chance. Its paying out because my TA is amazing! Her name is Mandy and she is so nice and responsive and answers all of my questions quickly! She is making this process way less stressful. We are looking at the Royal but I am a bit worried about the price for guests so we shall see.

     

    Where are you getting married?

      Other than Playa del Carmen!  I want to stay at an All-Inclusive, get married in a Catholic church and have an off-resort reception.  Sounds simple, but it isn't.  I do need to figure out a travel agent to help with at least the resort part and future guest booking.

      Yea i can see how that could be tough. I wanted to stay at one hotel and get married at another and that was just way too difficult and I thought it would be so easy. Esp since i see so many other brides online have done it. 

       

      Here is a non-resort church that I really like in Mexico: www.cristoresucitadocancun.org

        Those booties are so hilarious! The ground was sacred so we all had to wear them when we got off the helicopter
